    1. Mental stimulation – We love our little ones, but adult interaction is vital to our mental and emotional well being.
    2. A reason to clean up and put some makeup on.
    3. When people ask “Do you work?” you can say “Yes. I’m an Avon Rep. “Would you like an Avon book?”


      Pros and Cons to Selling Avon

    1. Supplement your retirement income.
    2. Mental stimulation – use it or lose it, baby!
    3. Meaningful interaction with others.
    4. Make new friends.
    5. Occasional opportunities for sales motivational meetings.


    Cons to selling Avon:
    1. Slow startup.  It takes time to build a customer base, Sooo
    2. in the beginning, you don’t make much money.
    3. It is selling.  You will have to approach people.
    4. On occasion, a customer will be unhappy about a product or something you’ve said or done.
    5. There will be moments when you feel discouraged. (It will pass.)
    6. Some people will not consider your business to be work.
    7. Since no boss will be demanding performance, you will have to motivate yourself to work.
    8. Sometimes it may seem like you’re always working.
    9. Some family or friends may not be supportive – may not share your enthusiasm.
    My 2 cents:
    The biggest con to selling Avon is the slow startup.  Avon is not a get rich quick plan.  It takes work, determination, and time to find and develop repeat customers; but, the opportunity is real.  One can develop a strong business.  Clearly, I am biased toward the pros.  The truth of the matter is that I am enjoying my experience as an Avon Representative, and I hope you will enjoy selling Avon too.
